Feeling the Christmas spirit...

Coming home from work today I noticed that there were quite a few houses with the Christmas lights on and their yards and homes all decorated. Everything always looks so beautiful when it is all lit up. The Christmas spirit has hit me. Saturday evening is our annual Santa Claus parade so I am excited about that. On Sunday Santa arrives at the mall so Christmas is definitely in the air. I love this time of year so much. It truly is a magical time. I love all the smiling faces, the hustle and bustle, and all the Christmas music playing wherever you go. Does the place where you live have a Santa Claus Parade? If so when is it held and it is a daytime or evening parade? We use to have it in the daytime here but a few years back they changed it to the evening and it is so much nicer with all the floats lit up. I am really looking forward to it.

I am in Florida and I haven't seen anything yet. On the other hand, I never go out at night so I wouldn't see the lights. I did notice in the paper that the big area nearby there is a huge display of lights that the boy scouts put on to raise money and toys for Toys for Tots. I plan on going there. My family is in New Jersey and I won't be able to see them this year. My daughter and grandson were here last week.

@Happy2BeMe I think they are, but for us, it's a little different, as today is my daughter's birthday. So, my husband and I can't really think about Christmas until her birthday and party are over. Next week, they'll probably start getting excited.

@Happy2BeMe I love getting it done, mostly online love when they drop it on my porch. Not fighting the crowds, no using gas, and of course saving on lunch. Can't go Christmas shopping without going out for lunch. I think it's a law, Christmas shop you gotta go out for lunch lol.

I can understand that. Moving here to Florida two years ago from the northeast really gets me depressed during the holidays. Christmas isn't the same without snow. Of course we don't miss plowing out the huge driveway we had.

There is a Santa parade in the shopping center a couple of miles from here. I've never seen the actual parade but I've gone there many times to walk around and see all the lights. I hope my new neighborhood puts up a lot of lights for Christmas. It would be a wonderful sight for me!
